All pupils at All Saints have the right to a rich and deep learning experience that includes the learning of the basics of an additional language. The study of Languages prepares pupils to participate in a rapidly changing world in which work and other activities are increasingly carried out in languages other than English.
Pupils use language to communicate information responsibly and creatively; learning how to use languages to enable access to ideas and experiences from a wide range of people, communities and cultures across our school and wider demographic.
We teach a curriculum that enables our pupils to become effective users of language show an understanding and respect of different cultures in our local, national and global communities.
We aim to ensure all pupils access and have the opportunity to learn basic communication skills in another language.
Teachers are provided with sufficient resources electronically (Kapow and Espresso) and reading materials in order to support the teaching of a variety of speaking activities.
Teachers and pupils use an additional language in daily routines, for example, through answering the register and counting. We follow a broad and balanced Languages curriculum that builds on previous learning and provides both support and challenge for learners.

All KS2 classes will have a scheduled language lesson each week. In EYFS and KS1, children Languages alongside other curriculum subjects.
We want to ensure that Languages is embedded in our whole school curriculum and that opportunities for enhancing learning by using languages are always taken.
Our children enjoy and value Languages and know why they are doing things, not just how. Children will understand and appreciate the value of Languages in the context of their personal wellbeing and their many career opportunities.
The Languages curriculum will contribute to children’s personal development in creativity, independence, judgement and self-reflection. This would be seen in them being able to talk confidently about their work, and sharing their work with others.
